§ DR. COOPER (Southwark, Bermondsey)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will give the number of the foreign women who have been convicted during the last year at the Marlborough Street Police Court for soliciting or loose and disorderly conduct; whether the magistrate, on conviction, can issue an order to repatriate these foreigners; and, if he can, the number of such orders made during the year.
§ MR. GLADSTONE
I am informed that the number of foreign women convicted at the Marlborough Street police court during the year ended April 30th for solicitation or disorderly conduct was 765. The magistrate has only since January 1st, 1906, had power to recommend the making of expulsion orders, and he has done so in one case.
